5 stars! As a mother and teacher I am always looking for books to teach my kids that being who you are is something to celebrate and I AM ME is all that and more. Not only does the story teach children to embrace who they are, is also has some amazing illustrations My boys, ages 4 and 5, loved this story and a great dialogue started after reading it. I love books that bring me closer to my children and open up lines of communication. This is a must for parents everywhere!
